My background is in social anthropology. My research interests include migration studies, transnational anthropology, Bosnian diaspora, multi-sited ethnography and meanings of home and belonging. Moreover, I am interested in ethnographic approaches to artistic production and in developing anthropological approaches to reading and writing practices.


My research project Between Nation States and Transnational Networks, funded by the Academy of Finland, examined the ways of living in the Bosnian diaspora, as well as the ways of relating to the violent past among the Bosnians.


In my current project I analyse the question of missing persons in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and elsewhere.
